The Notley Arms Inn
Re-built around 1870 The Notley Arms Inn, Exmoor National Park, Somerset has recently been refurbished back a traditional country inn with open fires and a beautiful beer garden bounded by a bubbling stream and a separate coach house with six en-suite bedrooms which have been awarded 'Four Star Gold' by the AA. We serve Somerset's finest Ales, Beers and Ciders as well as the best local produce for our meals, which are freshly prepared daily by our award winning team of chefs. Our prices includes a delicious fresh home cooked full Exmoor Somerset breakfast. Whilst in a stunningly beautiful part of Exmoor, we are conveniently located to Taunton (13 miles); Minehead (9 miles) and Dunster (7 miles). Other nearby points of interests are: Tarr Steps; Exmoor's most famous landmark is an ancient stone clapper bridge shaded by gnarled old trees. Its huge slabs are propped up on stone columns embedded in the River Barle. Local folklore aside (which declares it was used by the devil for sunbathing), it first pops into the historical record in the 1600s. Holnicote Estate; The 5060-hectare Holnicote Estate sweeps south east out of Porlock, taking in a string of impossibly pretty villages. Picturesque Bossington leads to charming Allerford , with its 15th-century packhorse bridge. The biggest, Selworthy , offers eye-catching Exmoor views, a cafe, shop, and cob-and-thatch cottages clustering around the village green. Cliff Railway; This extraordinary piece of Victorian engineering sees two cars linked by a steel cable descend or ascend the sloping cliff face according to the weight of water in the cars’ tanks. All burnished wood and polished brass, it’s been running since 1890 and makes for an unmissable ride. And finally we would like to recommend, the beautiful West Somerset Steam Railway; the longest Steam Heritage Railway in the UK connecting Minehead with Bishops Lydeard.
